Vaccine Registration Update – April 7

This message has been approved by Kyle Clark, Vice President for Finance & Administration.

Florida State University is pleased to expand eligibility for the COVID-19 vaccination to Florida State University faculty, staff, and current students (regardless of residency status).  Per the Governor’s latest communications, we may now vaccinate all Floridians with any COVID-19 vaccine as prescribed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

At this time, the University is administering the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine which is approved for use in individuals 16 years of age and older.  Please note, minors must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian in order to receive the vaccine.

HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS – we kindly ask that you please wait to schedule your vaccination appointments until the last week of April so our college students are able to be vaccinated before the end of their current term. Thank you for your cooperation.

As we continue to improve the vaccination registration process, we are excited to announce that we have partnered with a trusted vaccination management provider.  Our new partner has processed over one million vaccinations through their state of the art vaccine management solution.  There are over 90 sites in the state of Florida currently using this solution.  We are enthusiastic about working with them in our site.

Additional appointments are available now. You will find more information on how to create an account and register for your vaccines on our website: The entry code for our site is FSU2021. You will need to enter this code in order to schedule an appointment at the FSU vaccine clinic.

The vaccine will be distributed within Florida Department of Health guidelines. Individuals are encouraged to speak with their primary care provider to discuss any questions before electing to be vaccinated. If you have any of the following conditions, please consider consulting with your current medical provider if you need guidance on COVID-19 vaccination for your specific situation:

  • Pregnancy
  • Breastfeeding
  • Compromised immune system (such as cancer or if you take certain immunosuppressive medications)
Some pre-existing medical conditions may exclude you from receiving the COVID-19 vaccine. According to the CDC and public health professionals, there are times when you should defer vaccination for COVID-19:
  • If you have been given any other vaccine two weeks before getting the COVID-19 vaccine. You should also not have any other vaccine until more than two weeks after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.
  • History of severe COVID-19 illness and you were treated with COVID-19 antibodies within the past three months.
  • Currently, have a moderate or severe illness.
  • Recently been diagnosed with COVID-19 and have not yet recovered and been cleared from isolation.
  • Under quarantine as a close contact of someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.
  • If you have a history of allergic reactions, you may still receive the COVID-19 vaccine as long as the allergy was not to a vaccine component. Clinical staff will monitor you after the vaccination for your safety.

Individuals who have the opportunity and would like to vaccinate outside the University are still encouraged to do so. Please remember to wear short sleeve clothing that can easily expose your arm on the day of your vaccination. You must bring a photo ID to your appointment.
